Accessing AEA Digital Resources for Close Reading – March 6

Please join us March 6 as the AEA media & literacy staff in collaboration with Iowa Department of Education staff hold webinars which will assist teachers in locating and analyzing instructional resources which support the Iowa Core with a focus on using AEA digital resources for Close Reading.This webinar is a follow-up presentation to the webinar from last school year, Text Complexity and the Iowa AEA Online resources. The archived session of the text complexity webinar can be found at the same site used for registration. Text Complexity and Close Reading are closely intertwined, so attendees may wish to review last year’s webinar as a precursor to attending the upcoming session.

The webinar will be held at two different times, 11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m. and 3:45-5:00 p.m. For more information, go to http://tinyurl.com/IAwebinars. To register, go tohttp://tinyurl.com/n2olxwz.
